If you imagine a dark alley what do you think of. Happiness or fear?
I’m guessing you thought of danger why is that? I’m sure in reality 99% of people walk through dark alleys and lane-ways without any incident what so ever. So why do we think of danger, when we say dark alley?
Was it because Batman’s parents were killed there? Is it because the caped crusader prowls them now haha.
Have you ever been actually mugged down a dark alley?
So what is it that has created this mentality about dark alleys being dangerous? That something MAY happen not will?
Its really interesting isn’t it?
We can blame the media, but in reality its actually just a story, that movies and the media have perpetuated over the years.
So if it is just a story why do we feel it’s real?
If we walk down the same alley every day, does the feeling change, because your more familiar with it? Why is that? Are you more or less safe than someone who has never walked down that alley?
So what is fear really? Why do you fear when your just imagining stuff? Is fear real then?
I will be expanding on this over the coming day’s and at our weekly talk in the epic life group.
